Receive expert management of diabetic eye disease in our Melbourne facilities
Diabetes mellitus is not an uncommon disease in Australia, affecting over 1 million of our population. As a frequent complication arising from this condition is diabetic eye disease, Melbourne patients suffering diabetes are often recommended to come under the care of a retinal ophthalmologist to regularly monitor for diabetic eye problems.
Diabetic eye disease encompasses several issues that can occur within the eye as a result of diabetes and elevated blood glucose.
Maintaining optimal control of your blood glucose levels is the best way to reduce your risk of diabetic eye disease. Our retinal specialists can work alongside your endocrinologist and GP to ensure you are receiving high quality collaborative care. For those with existing diabetic eye diseases, our Melbourne rooms are equipped to provide treatment to preserve your visual function.
With our diabetic eye specialist, Melbourne patients have access to expert care and management. In addition to our retinal eye doctor, Mornington Peninsula Eye Clinic also offers the services of cataract and glaucoma ophthalmologists who work together to manage further complications of diabetic eye disease if they arise.
Mornington Peninsula Eye Clinic welcomes patients with various diabetic eye diseases to our Melbourne practice, both in our Mornington rooms or in Armadale at our associate practice, Eye Laser Specialists. Call us now to organise your appointment with our retinal specialist.
Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
